. remember during the ldc debt crisis in the '80s with citi. citi was one of the first banks in china. the question is, can you turn that into a real stable and profitable franchise? every other quarter we've had noise in their earnings and balance sheet and i think as an analyst i've always wanted to see them make this business run a little bit quieter, if you will. even the write-off of smith barney, that's an ugly thing because it says they didn't make money on that business and in order to sell it, they had to take a loss. >> you know, jim cramer is on the phone, too. jim, i saw what you tweeted about pandit leaving after a terrific quarter which is worrisome. how should we read this? >> i'm listening to mr. whalen and all well and good, you know, pandit finally got it right. this was an absolutely terrific quarter, there was so much that was good here, international was absolutely terrific, you had very good net interest margin. you know, i got to be really blunt about this. i don't know what the heck is going on here. havens i've known since when i did a ton of business with mor

be the first two day weather related closure since 1988. new york city is very, very quiet even for 6:00 in the morning. they shut down the transit system last night. people have been heeding that. and a lot of evacuations again in the low lying areas, this so-called zone a where we are. but the worry is that the storm surge if it is as forecast, which will be worse than hurricane irene last year, could create some serious problems in terms of getting in to the subway system, in terms of getting into the con ed steam lines and potentially the electrical system. and so even if the wind doesn't blow out power, there could be pry empty differen preemptive power outages. so that's one of the many reasons that they decided to hunger down with all the financial markets. stay home, there's money to be made later and we'll just deal with it. for now just a little bit of a breeze blowing here. that is clearly supposed to chan change. >> where do you go later? >> you have to find a pole, right? you know that that's -- every guy out in a strong breeze, you've seen -- you've got to find a pole ar

on the dow and nasdaq. >>> a day after citi's management shake-up. joining us now is jeffrey harte. and jeff, we've got to get to a couple of things. let's talk bank of america first, but then we've got to talk about the drama in the board room over at citi. you look at these numbers. it's flat across the board. is that a good thing, a bad thing? >> i mean, the results themselves are actually a good thing. in an unusual kind of event, first call left all the items in this quarter. so the 7-cent loss consensus number was kind of consistent with the gaap number. if you back out a couple of pennies of securities gains, i'm getting a couple cent loss, so the loss was better than we were expecting it to be. you back out the items, they were profitable. but i think the results were pretty good. what will cause people to pause a bit again is the mortgage reps and warranties. the requests they have, increased by what looks like 12% sequentially. not as big as the 40% sequential increase we saw last quarter, but that's, i think, going to kind of be back in people's faces again. and secondarily, on th
